Review 1 for Joshua: New American Commentary [NAC]
Howard, a conservative scholar has written one of the five best commentaries I've seen on Joshua (Hess, Woudstra, Butler, and Harris are the others). Howard and Hess are probably the best of the five. [I have not yet seen the commentaries by Hubbard or McConville & Williams, but based upon their previous work, I suspect their contributions will also be impressive]. Howard’s introduction is very helpful (especially his discussions of history and theology). His comments on the text itself are insightful. The excursuses are interesting and helpful.
